The stiffest and dampest board in Never Summer's lineup, the Chairman Snowboard commands exposed faces, knee-deep powder, and steep groomers like a boss. This elite freeride deck absorbs tons of shock and high-speed vibration, allowing you to mow down anything standing in your way including bumped-up runs and variable snow at the end of a powder day. It features NS's aggressive Ripsaw Rocker Camber for even more edge hold and pop, along with the Chairman Power Grip sidecut that creates additional contact points for insane edge hold, even on the iciest slopes.
Equipped with Never Summer's most extensive dampening system, RDS 1+, the Chairman provides a consistently smooth ride over chunder runs and high-speed chatter, what, with twice the amount of elastomeric rubber foil as the usual RDS 1 Damping to cushion and stabilize fast, sketchy straightlines. And even more impact-absorption comes in the form of Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area that reduce foot fatigue and increase confidence at high speeds. Carbon laminates enhance edge-to-edge energy transfer and torsional rigidity to help you hold an edge at high speeds and explode out of pow slashes. Add in a lightning-fast Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base, and you've got yourself a board that's comfortable straight-lining at high speeds all over the mountain.
